For the first website, that's pretty good. You're doing a lot of things right: simplicity, intuitive layout, clear design, readable. The "Nerds in Space" does not look good yet - too much aliasing (I cannot spell the word, I never remember how it's spelled). Too much ragged edges there. Also, I don't like the background. But that's just personal taste. It looks too much like a cold concrete wall.
